President Alexander Lukashenko has gone on a working visit to Kyrgyzstan. The plane of the head of state took off from the National Airport Minsk.
In Bishkek, the Belarusian leader will take part in the meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council. One of the main themes is rapprochement with third countries. About fifty states expressed their desire to cooperate with the Eurasian Economic Union. Security issues are also on the agenda.
Alexander Lukashenko will take part in an informal meeting of CSTO heads of state. As part of these negotiations, the parties intend to coordinate their actions.
Bilateral relations play an important role in global integration processes. Belarus and Kyrgyzstan intend to increase the pace of economic cooperation. Participation in the EEU is positive experience.
Andrei Strachko, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Belarus in the Kyrgyz Republic:
We created the EEU in order to facilitate the work of our business entities. Therefore, this mean movement of capital, the movement of labor force. It is all very promising: the creation of joint ventures on preferential terms, the possibility of using the single economic space with access of our products to the EEU markets. I think this will give its effect in the future.
The previous meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council was held in Astana. As a result, about a dozen documents were inked. Experts expect that the forthcoming talks will be no less fruitful.
